Dessert was so fresh and delicious tonight I just had to share! After a long walk with Jeff I couldn’t bring myself to eat something too rich, but we were craving something sweet; so I made caramel apple parfaits. And I must say they were scrumptious and beautiful!
I diced some honey crisp apples and used them as the base. I drizzled them with Apple Cider Caramel (see recipe below) and sprinkled on a few pepitas. Then I topped the apple base with a generous dollop of plain Greek yogurt, which I also drizzled with Apple Cider Caramel and sprinkled with pepitas. Finally I topped the whole thing with half a Sawgrass Apple Cider Cookie. If I do say so myself, “mmm mmm mmm!!!”
Apple Cider “Caramel”
This recipe was a happy accident. I envision it being excellent over vanilla ice cream, perhaps drizzled over a bagel with cream cheese or over oven roasted sweet potato fries. The possibilities are endless!!!! Enjoy!
- 2 cups Apple Cider
